On September 3, 2014, urban design consultancy URBED was announced winner of the 2014 Wolfson Economics Prize. The competition has spurred unprecedented conversation and debate over the concept of Garden Cities in the UK, while the finalists call for the development of theoretical ideas and implementation of practical solutions. ArchDaily brought you the winning proposal earlier, and The Building Centre, an independent forum of the built environment, teamed up with the Wolfson Prize organizers to bring you an exhibit further exploring the broad range of design solutions from over 200 brilliant entries.
The research, insights, planning diagrams and illustrations of the winning proposal and other finalists will be displayed along with key statements, quotes, essential abstracts, and full essays of the projects. In addition to the exhibit in London, a portable version of the show will be presented at Letchworth, the world’s first Garden City as well as significant Royal Town Planning Institute conferences throughout the UK.
Simon Wolfson, founder of the Wolfson Economics Prize, said: "I am pleased that we have been able to stage this fantastic exhibition to convey the great ideas proposed by entrants to a wider audience. Anyone who has an interest in how we might build visionary, economically viable and popular Garden Cities will want to visit it."
